Good attitude and my wiliness to learn. When I started this course I did not know much about this topic but my wiliness to learn has been one of my biggest strength.
Personal I wanted to learn as much as I can about recruitment & selection. After taking this course I can safely say that I have learned and gained a lot. My goal was to understand the basic recruitment & selection concepts, understand various labor laws, and final how companies reward their employees. Yes all the above mentioned learning goals were meet.
I was very impressed with the course outcome. From the material used, to Dr. Vince and all the way to my fellow students everything was second to none. Although the assessments were a little bit hard, the workload was manageable. So in a nutshell personally, the course outcome was more or less what I expected.

As a leader I have also learned how expatriates are settled in foreign countries as well as laws involved in settling expatriates.

Communication both within and outside the organization
Need to learn more about ERISA, COBRA and HJIPPA. Also my goal is to as HR manager to be a good communicator both in writing and oral. The ability to communicate properly as manager is very important and that is one thing I wanted to learn from this course and I did.
This course taught me that as a HR representative/ personal I need to improve on my communication and that is one area I will be working on. Overall the outcome of this course was very good; I personal enjoyed it although in some units the work load was too much.
Need to improve on my weekly reading schedule because I was behind during most of the time and trying to play catch –up was not cool. This course has taught me that as HR representative I will be reading constantly hence the need to improve on that.
Like what I always say in everything we do in life there is always room for improvement and in my case reading constantly is one area I need to work on. Otherwise the course outcome was good and it pin-pointed my short comes when it comes to reading.
Ability to share my knowledge
The course has taught me as HR representative how to share my knowledge with others, it has also taught me the broader picture of HR which I was not aware of and I need to improve on those areas.
Wow what a well-developed course, I loved it.
